Pyramid construction was a global phenomenon thousand of years ago. For some reason, ancient cultures around the globe decided to erect giant, magnificent pyramids that defy logic and explanation.
While many researchers argue Pyramids were built as tombs to protect Pharaohs, Kings, and rulers in the afterlife, there are those who believe these magnificent structures –present on all continents— had a far greater purpose. Some even argue that Pyramids were used as giant energy machines that had the ability –and maybe still have— to harness Earth natural energy.
Whatever their purpose was, these magnificent structures are present all around the globe, and while we are all acquainted with the pyramids of the Giza Plateau, the truth is there are magnificent structures that are just as great as the Great Pyramid of Giza.
The LARGEST Pyramid in Mexico
Not long ago, researchers in Mexico have discovered a Pyramid that according to initial measurements, is larger than the Great Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan.
The structure is connected by roads located on top of surrounding elevations.
The Pyramid located on the acropolis of Tonina, Chiapas, is estimated to be around 2,000 years old and exceeds in height the pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan which measures 65 meters.
INAH researchers have determined that the city center had an architectural continuity between 10 and 12 hectares, which is the double of what was previously thought and mainly corresponds to the south facade of the Acropolis, one of the most important Mayan areas known to researchers.
The Pyramid(s) of Caral
Around 5000 years ago, ancient Peruvians settled at Caral and created one of the most advanced and oldest civilizations in South America. Their knowledge in several science ahs left today’s researchers perplexed and unable to answer the many mysteries behind the greatest South American civilization to develop independently.
While many people are unaware, the Ancient Civilization of Caral built magnificent structures and Pyramids worthy of all praise. The Pyramids of Caral are contemporary with Egyptian Pyramids (3200 BC).
The builders of the Pyramids of Caral even applied advanced forms of civil engineering.
The great Pyramid of CHINA
The Great Pyramid of China is believed to be one of the most secretive ancient monuments on the surface of the planet.
In fact, many people are unaware that thousands of years ago, builders in China erected some of the largest monuments on the planet.
For years, the government has not allowed proper studies to be performed on the numerous pyramids near the city of Xi’an.
Excursions that managed to sneak into the area where the pyramids are discovered multiple anomalies like a metallic material which could not be identified by researchers.
The Pyramids are believed to be over 8,000 years old, making them the oldest and largest structures ever discovered. Of course, there are researchers who indicate that the Bosnian Pyramids are far older and larger than their counterparts in China.
According to pilots who have flown above the Great Pyramid of China, the Monument has approximate dimensions of 300 meters in height and 450 meters on each side. It is noteworthy to mention that these dimensions would make the Chinese Pyramid the largest one ever discovered on Earth, dwarfing the Great Pyramid of Giza with a mere 147 meters in height and 320 meters in width.
Even more fascinating is the fact that the Great Pyramid of Egypt has around 52,900 square meters, the ‘Great Pyramid of China’ exceeds the number with a staggering 202,000 square meters.
